    Who here has had training on carrying concealed other than that ridiculous class that they say qualifies you to have a concealed carry license?

    What kind of training are you asking about? The "Ridiculous" class I went to had a lot of good legal information. ( other than that it was " See this end of the gun? The one W/ the round hole in it, that's the part that needs to be pointing at the bad guy"

    13 years in law enforcement, 4 of those in detectives and another in a plain clothes detail. Plus training through continuing education for leos. Classes made available by a rather progressive Sheriff's Department in the area I used to work which I always managed to get an invite to. Out of law enforcement for about 15 but continue my training.

    obviously i train for other situations than just the everyday ccw. i am in the military and my skill needs to be a little wider range, ie carbine, shotgun, precision rifle, low light etc. and a little better than the average civilian.

    before i get defensive i am gonna keep my cool and ask. is this directed at me?

    No it was not. However you might want to ask yourself why you were ready to lose your cool.

    I have nothing but respect for our military, it's the mercenary types I can't stand.

    I have been training regularly over the past 28 3/4 years regarding concealed carry. I have not had a ridiculous class yet.

    Ok guys here's my serious response to the question.

    I've had :

    Techniques for Effective Aggression Managment 1&2

    Cornell University Theraputic Crisis Management Techniques

    Cornell University Theraputic Crisis Intervention Techniques

    Love & Logic 1& 2

    And I worked in a Crisis Treatment center (inpatient) for teens. That was the best training I ever got, if you want to learn situational awareness go to work everyday around a bunch people who want to hurt you.

    Now I'll leave this disscussion to the hard chargers.

    I teach "the ridiculous class."

    Do we want it to be mandated that you have to go to API or Thunder Ranch if you want a permit? Or should you have a right to do what you want after you've learned how not to hurt anyone else while you're doing it?

    I do this as a kind of community outreach to people who haven't a clue about firearms, but want to find out. It's basic because that's where everyone has to start, and that's how the course is designed. It's a safety course, and it teaches you how not to shoot yourself or others accidentally.

    I consider it a testament to the American character that everything after that, including learning how best to shoot someone on purpose, costs extra and is up to you.

    More on the way.

    I am uncertain which is more ridiculous, the notion that any class is necessary to obtain a concealed carry license/permit, or the fact that a license/permit is required by some states before a citizen may carry a firearm.

    Either way, since the Constitution of the United States says that the Right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, IMHO what's "ridiculous" is the entire licensing/permitting concept. As others have said numerous times before this, we should not have to obtain the state's written approval before exercising a Constitutional right.

    With that as context, to be honest my feeling is that if the state wants to mandate a class before issuing a permit, the more ridiculous the class the better I like it. If I have to waste a day sitting in a class, I'd much prefer being amused to having to pay attention.

    1. Point noisy end at bad person.
    2. Pull trigger to the rear with even pressure until there is a VERY loud noise.
    3. Repeat as necessary.

    After 240 hours of training I began training police.

    It still required 16 more hours to qualify to instruct CCW classes. It was different training.

    After 500 hours of training I was a certified instructor on sub-guns, shotguns and numerous handgun disciplines.

    Never met anyone who did not need more training.

    JMHO.

    Same here. The statutory requirement in Arkansas doesn't even dictate proficiency in marksmanship. It simply requires that the instructor be satisfied that the student knows how to handle the weapon safely. Of course, I require live fire and if the marksmanship is poor I won't sign off on the training paperwork. In that case, I have the student return for individual instruction, typically at no additional cost.

    Ya see, I want everyone who is able to carry a handgun safely to have that option. I realize that one day of training does not make a competent marksman, but I always emphasize that what I'm showing them in class is something for them to take home and practice and to get additional training when they can.

    As for the OP, I've had 10 years in USAF Security Police(prior to the re-unification of Security and Law Enforcement) as an EST member, ABGD training, competition, etc. I've also got 8 years in civilian Law Enforcement, numerous tactical classes and qualifications, IDPA and IPSC competition, Active Shooter training, force on force training with MILES and SIMS, etc.

    In other words, not nearly enough training... ;)
